Summary

The Demographic Monitoring Area (DMA) is the boundary within which all demographic criteria for the Yellowstone grizzly bear population are currently monitored and evaluated. The DMA replaces the Conservation Strategy Management Area (CSMA) as the area within which total grizzly bear population size is estimated and biologically sustainable mortality thresholds are established. All grizzly bear observations and mortalities inside the DMA are counted toward population estimates and mortality thresholds; however, observations outside the monitoring area are also recorded and reported by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team.

Purpose

The Demographic Monitoring Area (DMA) was proposed by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team (IGBST) in 2012 to replace the Conservation Strategy Management Area (CSMA) as the designated area within which grizzly bear observations contribute to population estimates and mortalities count against sustainable mortality thresholds. The DMA is based on the 2007 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) boundary delineating biologically suitable habitat for grizzly bear occupancy. The DMA is systematically monitored by the IGBST boundary and includes habitat currently occupied by grizzly bears or areas which grizzly bears may occupy in the future. The DMA excludes those areas where long-term grizzly bear occupancy or expansion is unlikely to be sustained.
